Not much of an improvement I wanted to love these pants so much. I spend a lot of time working in the field and the MH "man-pris" are absolutely my first choice. I have burned through two pairs of the Rifugio 3/4 length pants (discontinued, replaced with these). The Rifugio had some problems (no back pocket, snap closure that was fixed in later models) but they were awesome. I saw the design for these (in particular the back pocket!) and was excited to get a pair. I have had them for a week and still can't decide if I want to send them back or not. I am sure I will eventually get them dirty and be stuck with them.First off, they are too thick. 3/4 length pants are for summer. The Rifugios were made from a much lighter weight material. I don't want to be roasting in the field.Secondly they are way way too stretchy. This is probably the leading factor that makes me want to send them back. They fit me everywhere except the waist......the most important place. The stretch of the waistband makes them fall off if I am not wearing a belt (integrated in previous models). A smaller size would be pretty constricting in the butt and thighs so I don't really know what to do here. I guess I just have to wear a belt with them.On a positive note, the pockets on these pants are a huge improvement. One thing that I think MH has had a hard time with is making clothing unnecessarily "technical looking", pockets at awkward angles, zippers all over the place, weird reflective strips, rubberized areas. Eh, "form follows function", that means function first. This is an area where these pants show improvement.All of that said, I would gladly trade these for a pair of the Refugios but alas....I will have to settle for super stretchy pants with a belt.In the future I may have to start shopping around. Bummer.... March 27, 2014
